This is a read at your own risk type of rant. I may inadvertently spoil something for either the book or the movie. It is not my intentions to do so, but just consider yourself warned.
Then I finally actually watched Mockingjay Part 1 the other day with my little brother and dad...
I found it very hard to sit through it.
WHAT WAS EFFIE TRINKET DOING IN THE FREAKING MOVIE?!
They took out 3 very lovely characters and replaced them with EFFIE. I mean....what was wrong with having the 3 (or 2? Sorry it has been a year since I read the book...at work...when I should have been...you know...working) that are supposed to be there do their parts?!
Effie is annoying on a good day when she is where she belongs, but then you put her in a place that she doesn't belong and she just makes me want to smack her.
The more time Effie spent on the screen the more annoyed I got. I was very happy when she wasn't where I could see her.
Other than that, I really don't get why they made this particular book in the series a 2 part movie. If you have read the book you will probably remember that not a whole lot happens in the first half of it. Similar to how not too much happened in the movie....
I also do not think that there was not enough time devoted to relationships between Katniss and Finnick or between Katniss and Gale. So much was lost there. I really hope that in part two that they are able to recover from some of the missed bits and have some things still make sense.
I hope you enjoyed my little rant about this particular book turned into a movie. Do you have any suggestions for books to movie that I should read/watch and rant about? Do you have one that you would like to rant about. I would be happy to let you guest post your rant onto my blog to share with the world!
